We offer half day (4 hours) and full day (8 hours) trips. These trips include all necessary equipment for up to 2 adults. Kids under 15 fish for free; additional anglers are $65 each. For full day trips lunch is provided.
In accordance with NYS fishing regulations, I will filet and package any fish you decide to keep.
The access to Lake Lonely is private, so we will be fishing before the public can access the water.
Available Bodies of Water
Nicknamed the “Queen of Lakes”, Lake George is as scenic as it gets with its gorgeous mountain backdrop. The lake is 32 miles long and has two different ends called the North and South end. We will be leaving from the Million Dollar Beach Boat Launch at the Southernmost end on our open water trips. The prominent fish species we will be targeting are Lake Trout, Atlantic Salmon, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Rock Bass, Pickerel, and Northern Pike. There is nothing more exhilarating than having the chance to catch a lake trout at over 100’ of water. If you enjoy ice fishing this is a chance to vertical jig during open water without feeling frozen. By using Vexilar and Hummingbird sonar units you will have the ability to watch a fish chase your bait all the way from the bottom to the top. If deepwater lake trout isn't your thing then we will switch gears and target Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass that can be found along the rocky points and weed beds in the lake. A 50-100 bass day is certainly not uncommon as the lake is loaded with hard fighting fish. We will also be able to target panfish in the spring, summer, and fall which provide tons of action for children and families that want more of a leisure experience.
Lake Lonely is my hidden gem in the area. It is around a mile long and is connected to Saratoga lake. The only accessible launch points are private and therefore it seems to limit the amount of fishing pressure on the lake. The prominent fish species found are Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Black Crappie, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Bluegill, Yellow Perch, and Brown Bullhead. With that being said we do pull out a handful of walleye every year. The lake shoreline on the north side is a mixed deciduous swamp, while the south side is primarily developed with personal residences. The outlet is a shallow weedy channel that drains into Kayaderosseras Creek approximately one mile upstream of Saratoga Lake. One of my favorite things about the lake is that the average size Largemouth Bass tends to run generally bigger than most of the surrounding lakes. On any guide trip you have a shot at landing a trophy Northern Pike or Largemouth Bass. Although the patterns of these species change throughout the year, on every trip there is the possibility to catch a fish of a lifetime.
Saratoga Lake is located in Saratoga Springs, NY and is around 5 miles long. Another aspect of the lake is its connection to another body of water, Fish Creek. Although the waterway becomes narrow and shallow, my aluminum bass boat can go as far up the creek as possible providing us with more fishing opportunities. During the summer the lake is extremely popular for fisherman and pleasure boaters. The lake holds a variety of species to target including Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Chain Pickerel, Yellow Perch, Walleye, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Bluegill, Rock bass, and Black Crappie. Although finding trophy sized fish becomes more difficult due to the heavy pressure the lake receives, the opportunity to catch a wide variety of species makes this lake a blast to fish.
On a scenic stretch of the Hudson River, just 14 miles from Saratoga Springs is a set back that is called “The Cove”. It is one of the few places where the river becomes frozen enough to ice fish. This is by far my favorite place to ice fish as you never really know what you will catch on any given day. You will have the opportunity to catch Walleye, Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, White Crappie, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Bluegill, Yellow Perch, and the occasional Bowfin.
